of the swing states in the 2008 election. maybe it's time for me to step back, catch my breath and just say why is this. why is this going on? why does obama have the lead he does? why is from the having difficulty, and what many people argue should be the core limping along economy and a president that has done so much as the defense and its face it popular at the beginning like the health care reform act and so long, the stimulus looked upon unfavorably by a lot of voters because even though many have felt the economy come back from cataclysmic tester it didn't exactly turn into a picture of health and voters tend to be unforgiving on things like that. what's going on? the first factor is the economy. it's not great now, but it's better than it used to be and i think we are beginning to get the sense that voters are getting credit for how much things have improved relative to a disastrous economic situation in the first year. voters can remember a few years back there some political scientist who maintained they can't remember what they had for breakfast and basically they just voted what's h
referendum, upon which parliamentary elections were held which were open to multiple political parties, and now i tell you that syria is continuing to work with the patriotic elements in the opposition to build a new and pluralistic syria that meets the aspirations of its people. syria, at the same time, is determined to carry out its duties and to protect its people from jihadists and takfiri terrorism, which armed terrorist groups are using to spread chaos and create sedition among syrians and threaten their peaceful coexistence. mr. president, we heard from this podium, and on other platforms, some calls that were made by those who are ignorant of the fact or maybe ignoring them, or maybe contributing to their spread, calling on the president of the syrian arab republic to step down. this is blatant interference in the domestic affairs of syria, and the unity of its people and its sovereignty. the syrian people and only the syrian people are authorized to choose their own future and the form of their state, which accommodates all groups throughout the entire spectrum of the syrian p
choice in this an election. and which approach will be best for jobs here in our country. i envision a better future than what we are entering today. steve asked me earlier about who are you targeting in your campaigns. you're asking me various personages. i think about 99% of the folks should be on our site. anybody uses electricity, anybody who drives a car, anybody who pays taxes, anyone who works for a living or wants a job or anyone who cares about their families future ought to be on our site. i figure that's about 99% of the people. why? because the electricity prices for the cap-and-trade energy tax that tim has supported would cost skyrocketing electricity and affect our technology community. people are paying $30 more every time you fill up compared to january of 2000. so if you like high gas prices, but if you want more affordable. and i want to allow us in virginia to produce oil and natural gas off our coast and use those royalties for roads and transportation. that would be the first bill i would introduce as your center. if people want a job, our approach is create mor
, nonliberal, not conservatives. the challenges facing their last election, a challenge from the raid. it does affect how you can behave in the senate to some degree. and we have seen that with both parties. so it seems to be getting worse and harder other than people making it easier. >> let me just make two points. one is let's not forget that 2009 and 2010, the democrats had majorities in both houses of congress. they were vetoproof purity of that stimulus package, obama cared, dodd-frank, the institution of the united states are too big -- are not too big to fail. so they had two years and they had majority for two years and they ran things through with all due respect. we were never consulted about obama cared. we were never consulted about the stimulus. we were never consulted about dodd-frank. we all have to work together between 2009 and 2010. amendment 2010 elections were rejected and if we hadn't had candidates in three swing states, we probably would've been the majority in the united states senate. when i look at all the polarization to work with me for two years. the citizens unit
,000 people give up hope they could find work. so obama has a strategy for re- election which is encouraging even more people to stop looking for what. >> but the question is not whether the and employment rate is 8.1% or 8.3%. the question is whether it is better than when the president took office? >> absolutely not. when you have the worst employment participation in 30 years -- in the three and a half years of president obama tenure, gdp growth has been 1.5%. historically, for the last seven years, it has been 3.7%. we have had less than half the historical average pared by contrast, in 1984, gdp growth was 7.2% print what does that mean when the economy is growing, when small businesses are prospering? they are creating new jobs and people are able to find work. it creates opportunity for everyone. what we have unfortunately is small business after small business facing crushing uncertainty. the single biggest question you hear from business leaders is they don't know between obamacare and dodd-frank and the offshore drilling moratorium in texas. but entrepreneurs expressed to me is the
about the recent london olympics games and the elections in the spring. >> his excelencia, the honorable david cameron and invite him to address the assembly. >> thank you, mr. presidency. a distinguished delegates, ladies and gentlemen. i am proud that this year britain welcomed the world to the olympic and paralympic games and put on a great display showing that while we may only have the 22nd largest population in the world, we can roll out one of the warmest welcome some world. and i am honored too that in this coming year i've been asked to co-chair the high-level panel to build on one of the united nations greatest achievements with a millennium development goal. britain takes this work very seriously, and i am convinced that we need to focus more than ever on the building blocks that take countries and people from poverty to prosperity. by these building blocks and in the absence of conflict and corruption, the presence of property rights and the rule of law we should never forget that for many in the world the closest relatives of poverty is injustice. development has never been
won't say yeah, we are right even in the best political climate after an election everyone is trying to be nice they can't make progress at the policy is so toxic they are not going to do with the problem. still downgrade. as we have to move past 2013 no matter what. you don't need causing the recession a threat to force us to move. in fact it is irresponsible to have the recession so we should get past the fiscal cliff, extend the ceiling and get to the fundamentals in this grand bargain that will for ever get rid of the fiscal cliff and have a tax code and get rid of the sequestered because we know what the plan will be and that is the best way to go. >> so, the way we got here to the fiscal cliff is a bunch of the cans kept getting kicked down the road and happened to land right in front of us now at the end of december. if you look at cbo office of the fiscal plan if you notice the scary part is the pile of cans that happen to be in front of us right now. there's a good part of the cliff though and that is the part that stretches on throughout the rest of the ten year budget wind
that did a lot of advertising in the 2010 election, such as the american teacher fund, americans for jobs security, americans for prosperity, the koch brothers group again. and we found that by attracting some other groups that get the money you then see that some of those groups are giving money to other groups. there seems to be kind of a turning going on. i have to say that when we do this work it's sort of feels like, you know, when you are going to a dinner party and buy a bottle of wine. it has a price tag on it. is to keep price tag and you're peeling of the quarter. it tears a little bit. it is a total pain. that is what it feels like. we just get the little pointer here and there. and i don't know if we will ever get the price tag off. yes. the other parts of the 990 that is interesting is the officers and directors, which are listed. the top vendors have to list their top five, which can be interesting. but this is not an easy path. let's go to the next slide. abcaeight. so what we have been doing with the information that we do find is incorporating it on our website in to the
that puts child care on the map encouraging to get state elected officials and federal elected officials and to the child care centers and they can put a pan on the map. i agree with we have to use more of those techniques in the reauthorization and we have to be more demanding to but i also believe this is a campaign in the congress that is definitely a challenge to get anything constructive said. we have to push more but i would disagree i think there is an interesting activity going on in the state but i think there is a lot of shella activity going on and very serious situations in terms of what is going on for the state funding and early education and in some places where it may look good systemwide it's very precarious, we will be able to maintain in terms of a strong early childhood system. but my final remarks since i was allowed to have the last word is to the business leaders and i would urge all of the business leaders that have increasingly stepped up to support early childhood to also step up to the tax-writing committee and point out all of the tax loopholes we can close an
's unemployed hobos? [laughter] heller: or this is the most difficult part of an election, that's proving something you didn't do or something you didn't say. and in this case, this is something i did not do and something i did not say. i did not say that. what i do want to talk about is i did. i believe there ought to be a federal safety net. i believe that's critically important. it's part of the responsibility this federal government has. for those who have come across hard times, tough times in this economy, especially here in nevada. so under every circumstance i've had a opportunity to vote for the extension of unemployment benefits. the first question that was asked, what have you done to break if your party, i think that's critically important. because i do think the federal government has responsibilities, and one of those is to make sure there's a safety net for people who have had tough times. believe me i've live inside a family that's had tough times. it's not easy. you need to understand that safety net needs to be there to get people back on their feet. diswhrm congresswoma
're having about the policies is that we absolutely need male legislators and male elected officials who prioritize women's health and understand and care about these issues. men like the men we have on this panel tonight. but we need more women in office. [cheers and applause] some of the members of congress are known to say if women are not at the table, we're on the menu. and that needs to change. [laughter] um, so i really do hope that young women in college, in high school who are thinking about their career options, and i many of us -- i know many of us are thinking how do i make a difference in the world, how do i change things for the better, consider going into elected office as an option for how to do that and engaging in this process as a way to have that kind of impact. we've seen unprecedented numbers of pieces of legislation attacking women's access to health care over the last few years, and you can call that a war on whatever you want. i don't want to fight about the terminology. but we've seen those numbers, and one important way to change that is not only to vote based
virginians wrestle with thinking about the election is looking at a congress that's broken, and it's broken because people won't work together. we don't have a shortage of ideas in the nation. we don't have a shortage of resources in this nation. what we have a shortage of is a willingness to compromise, find commonground and work together. we debated earlier, and i pointed out, look, we all make mistakes. public life and in public view, but the sentiment that was the challenging one was the notion that this young man had to be welcomed to the real america and to the real virginia. that was the challenging one. we lived through a state, and a lot of issues separated real virginians or other virrians, and we've seen that this week at the national level, that the sentiment is out there. we're only going to solve the big problems, balancing our budget, dealing with a new energy future, if we work together. george, you famously said as governor, you enjoyed knocking democrats' soft teeth down their throats, and you didn't say that with a smile. you said similar things as a senator against senat
with a great deal of experience in this policy area. he is aware that the government was elected to government with a set of policies about offshore processing and the treatment of refugees and asylum-seekers which he did not agree ith. [shouting] that is a matter of -- >> order. the prime minister, the prime minister will resume. >> my question is to the prime minister. i remind the prime minister, her statement that labor will and the third call to solutions because it is costly, unsustainable and wrong as a matter of principles. given that are expert panel disagrees and labor will now restore offshore processing, will she now apologized for her policy failure that led to 1000 dead, 20,000 illegal arrivals and a $4.7 billion cost blowout? >> the prime minister has the call. >> thank you very much, deputy speaker, and to the deputy leader of the opposition. council to study this report in detail. what you'll find when -- [inaudible] it is not saying to us just exactly reviewed what was done in the past. it is not think that. she's consequently doodling the eminent australians who put this tog

is the critical threshold for a president who's running for re-election. and on the back page you'll find the latest senate rankings where democrats have picked up some momentum. today we're talking about national security, and in about an hour, little over, i think the president will be addressing the united nations. so, um, this could not be timelier. we have three guests, all of whom have had pentagon positions in the obama administration, and i believe you're all on the national security advisory committee for the re-election campaign? so you're political as well as foreign policy experts. i'm going to introduce them one at a time, and then as i introduce them, i am going to put a question to each of them in his or her area of expertise, and then having done that, we'll open it up to questions from you. first, i'm going to start with doug wilson who served as assistant secretary of defense for public affairs from 2009 to 2012. he's a distinguished fellow of media and public affairs at george washington university. you're the more political, i believe, in this group, so let me ask you
, that's not known yet and noble into we see what happens after the election. >> so paul did not go on without any victory in the case. he did invalidate the medicaid expansion on a 30 involving the spending clause, which is a way to protect states from having, if you will, their systems commandeered through courts of use of spending. the previous case that was notable, in fact it was involving speed limits, trying to get people to slow down. had to get the states to change the limit and they said we will condition highway funds. that was held probably because the amount of money risk wasn't so coercive. what congress did here is they said well, if you don't accept this medicaid expansion, you don't not only lose the money for the medicaid expansion, you lose all of your medicaid money. and i think it's from paraphrasing all right, of course that's a bridge too far. the line goes from coercion to compulsion, i think is one of these cases you talk about, common during the state. , during the state. so for us as a practical matter, phyllis can be raised the question of why medicaid ex
are golden. in america, we give titles to military and clergy and elected officials, what do we get to teachers? it is an honored and valued profession so that everybody thinks about being a teacher. not because of the money, but because there is honor and prestige and respect in the profession of teaching and we have to bring that to the country. if we do that, we would see a pipeline change in the american classroom and that would be worth it. [applause] >> it is a rather homogeneous decided, i might point out. [laughter] >> what i say applies to every kid in america. this is good for everybody. wartime, better culture, that is not bad for middle class, but for everyone in the country it is good. >> i am just pointing out that comparing the united states of any real respect, yes, sir, in the back? >> institute of public policy, i would like to emphasize individualized tutoring and interventions and yet most of the programs we are talking about in the interventions, the lessons learned are for within one school. i have not heard much variation among schools and allowing the way tha
the election, how do you see cybersecurity advancing under a romney administration, and how do you see it advancing under continued obama administration? and what is the government supposed to do, what might happen if they can't get legislation passed? >> i wouldn't put it in a box under each administration. this is an issue that is a significant threat to our nation. is a threat to our financial security. it's a threat to our national security. it's got to be taken seriously regardless of who is in office. ideally what i would like to see is somebody in the white house, in office perhaps, that is responsible for coordinating this across the entire government. as a direct report to the president of the trade. somebody who's got the authority of the president of the united states to make decisions, and to coordinate this across the sectors. there's no single government agency that has the ability, the capacity to respond to this or to work this. people talk about nsa all the time, and general alexander i think is a real patriot is someone who cares about this country and he's got great
